Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife And Daughter”

This one I caught in the paper the other day. I called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day.

 

Something Went Wrong in Jet Crash, Expert Says.” Really? Ya’ think?

Police Begin Campaign to Run Down Jaywalkers.” Now that’s taking things a bit far!

Panda Mating Fails; Veterinarian Takes Over.”  What a guy!

Miners Refuse to Work after Death.” No-good-for-nothing’ lazy so-and-so’s!

Juvenile Court to Try Shooting Defendant.” See if that works better than a fair trial!

War Dims Hope for Peace.” I can see where it might have that effect!
